Multi-Cloud Cost Management


multi-cloud cost management

Proactively monitor, measure, and manage your cloud costs

Moving to the cloud can help businesses advance their digital journey, improve agility, and increase their ability to quickly scale to meet business and market needs. Cloud platforms have made it easy to quickly provision new cloud services; at the same time, the cloud costs can start to add up rapidly across the cloud platforms.

With each cloud provider having their own cost reports that can be accessed on their admin console, how do you begin to make sense of it all without spending hours compiling consolidated cost details? CloudCents consolidates and simplifies the analysis of cloud costs across the major cloud platforms. Eliminate the manual consolidation of your cloud cost data. Analyze your costs and manage your cloud budget vs. actual to optimize your cloud resource utilization and associated costs.

Managing and visualizing your multi-cloud spend in a consolidated dashboard is not just about seeing what you have spent, but also about what action you can take to better manage and reduce the spend. CloudCents provides users with a content-rich library of best practices from how to optimize your deployed resources to tips and tricks on steps to take to reduce your costs.

The Multi-Cloud Cost Management Dashboard

Time intelligent cost metrics allow you to filter your cost and usage data by both year and month to identify cost trends by provider at different granularities.

Smartbridge’s centralized dashboard solution also provides visuals for cost variance over a specific period, revealing how your usage has changed over a 12-month scale. All visuals are cross filterable allowing you to identify which accounts, subscriptions, or products are expending the most costs.
